From This Moment by Elizabeth Camden ~ Review

From This Moment  (From This Moment #1)My Review:

Famed lithographer Stella Westergaard arrives in Boston with one goal, getting to the bottom of the foul play behind her sister Gwen's death. So she moves to Boston taking a job as a stenographer at city hall, leaning on her sister's mysterious letters to help her find her sister's killer. Stella finds an unlikely ally in Romulus White the owner of the prominent Science World Magazine, a man with connections in high places, with a love of knowledge, who matches her for stubbornness in every category.

Sparks fly as the danger draws near, will Stella and Romulus be able to expose the corruption in city hall and bring Gwendolyn's murderer to justice?

Stella and Romulus are more alike than they would like to admit, passionate about their work and stubborn to a fault. They are both utterly devoted to their families, and Romulus has always been like a brother to his dear cousin Evelyn.

I loved the fast moving setting of the bustling Boston, perfect for this fast paced adventure. I admired Stella's determination on her quest for truth, not giving up despite the dead ends she keeps coming up against time and time again.

Romulus is a charming man who does not go unnoticed with his flamboyant mode of dress, which covers in his inward insecurities of not living up to his father's expectations. He is a self made man who has worked hard alongside his cousin for everything that he now calls his own, making prominent connections in Boston.

I liked Stella and her deep appreciation for her craft, and her passion to find the truth, though at times it blinded her to societies polite expectations.

Overall, a sweeping historical novel filled with passionate characters, snappy dialogue, intrigue, and mystery. Skillful storytelling brings Boston to life, in this quick moving read from Ms. Camden that lived up to my high expectations!
